The Blair Oko Golf Academy grew out of Blair Oko’s passion for the game. After three years on the professional circuit, Blair established BOGA, in 1998, to share his experience and expertise with other golfers.
For Blair, a Class A CPGA Professional Golf Instructor since 1990, golf is more than just a handicap. BOGA’s mission is to share the joy of the game and grow the sport.
BOGA is located on the second floor of the Kinsmen Twin Arenas in a spacious 12,000-square foot facility, complete with four state-of-the-art virtual golf simulators, a spacious indoor driving range, putting green, pro shop, locker storage and a full-service bar and lounge.
